What is the Water Lantern Festival?

The lantern festival is a magical experience that the whole family can enjoy. It is a whole new way to experience the Houston that you know and love.

Not only is the lantern festival rooted in tradition and memories, it also has layers of hope and happiness as we look to the future. It’s a truly amazing festival that lets you take a moment to slow down and enjoy the world around you.

There’s nothing quite like seeing all of the lanterns illuminated on the water. If you’ve never been before or even if you have been, it’s never a bad time to see it and participate.

At dark the lanterns (which have been specially designed to be safe, easy to clean up, and environmentally friendly) are able to be launched out into the water. Each person can launch their own.

It’s so cool to see the lanterns that everyone has designed and of course it’s really special when you get to launch your own lantern out into the water. Once the lanterns are all out on the water it’s a breathtaking sight!

Event staff make sure that each an every lantern that is launched is cleaned up afterwards and disposed of properly to avoid any environmental impact. That is why you are not allowed to bring outside lanterns to the festival!
